Hello Leah,
One way I can think of to normalize the y (or for that matter x) axis is to
use the "lim" command on SAC. For example in your case to normalize the
window you can use,

SAC>> ylim -1500000 1500000
SAC>> p1

This should be able to temporarily normalize your axis (i.e. as long as you
keep your window opened and ylim running). Remember you would need to save
the file if you want to have it as a permanant change.

I used PLOT1 to plot 3 different seismograms on one page. They all have
different y values. One goes from -4x10+5 to 4x10+5, while another goes
from -10x10+5 to 15x10+5. I would like all three to go from -15x10+5 to
15x10+5. How do I do this?

Thanks for the help,

I have a problem running Sac on a Linux PC.

Whenever I load a file and then plot it I can't klick into that window
examle x+ left mouse for zoom). When I close that window afterwards I get
error message (see blow).
The error occurs when I start my local sac or a remote session with ssh on
another computer.

I'm using ubuntu 6.06.1 with gdm and xfce4.
Trying kdm or xdm didn't help, neither did logging into kde or gnome. The
strange thing ist that I had it running, but I can't recover what (I)
have changed.
Version 100, 100.1 or even older versions don't make a difference here.

I'm pretty sure it's an X issue, but sac is the only application where I
into these problems.

Any ideas?

Here the error messages:
